Subject: Had to listen twice
I had to listen to this twice to make sure I hadn't mis-heard it.

Amy interviews a guy arrested on the street during the NY Rep convention who refused to plea bargain. The police and DA provided video evidence for his trial which they claimed was unedited, but had actually been tampered with specifically to remove evidence of his innocence. The officer claiming to have arrested him, and the one swearing the complaint were in fact nowhere near the scene. NOW charges are dropped.

The police spokesman claims that because 64% of arrestees agreed to an adjournment in return for all charges being dropped after six months they should still be considered guilty as charged. WTF? Wasn't that "innocent until proven guilty"?

Like I said, I had to listen twice.
